It’s not a Corvette you are buying any longer, “Stingray” is once again synonymous with the namesake of this car. Large sports tires, insane grip, impressively smooth handling and a redesigned interior and exterior that will make you salivate are just the tip of the iceberg. New sports-inspired seats grip your butt when aggressive driving and lead-foot-syndrome set in (upgradable to performance enhanced seats). Two different trim levels are offered with three different sub-trims. Standard 18” wheels in the front and 19” wheels in the rear create the roadster design you know and love about the Corvette. Decadent options that come standard include things like the powered soft-top, keyless entry and ignition, power front seats, 8” touchscreen with Bluetooth and the MyLink electronics interface as well as USB jacks and iPod inputs. The nine-speaker Bose sound system delivers punchy sound that easily can complement a nice Sunday drive. Of course, when considering a Corvette, it’s all about the engine. The standard 6.2 liter rear-wheel-drive V8 produces 455 horses at a whopping 460 pound-feet of torque with a six-speed automatic or a seven-speed manual. The gorgeous and sleek exterior is assuredly going to turn heads. Just make sure that the heads you are turning are not waiting by the side of the road with a radar gun to nab you with a fat speeding ticket.
